Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"1" hunter blunders through the jungle, not seeing the "2" elephants, "3" giraffes or "4" ostriches. But they watch him, in a counting book that according to PW, "turns learning into an adventure with spirited scenes in spectacular color paintings."
Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

"I tend to see the funny side of things," says Pat Hutchins. Whether it's the light, subtle humor of her first picture book, Rosie's Walk, or the slapstick comedy of Rats!, her special gift of humor is reflected in both words and pictures.

Pat Hutchins was born in Yorkshire, England, one of seven children, and grew up in the countryside of Yorkshire, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist.

She was encouraged by an elderly couple, who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school gave her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew.

She says she tries "to write about what children say and do," and she believes in very simple picture books for the youngest child. But her simple texts and wonderfully vivid pictures manage to convey the most complex emotions. She also has the rare ability to use such basic concepts as time, growth, and change to create imaginative, satisfying books for children. Her ideas come from a variety of sources: listening to her children and their friends, or sometimes from real situations. The idea for The Very Worst Monster came to her when her niece told her she wanted to give her baby brother away. Ms. Hutchins tempered the theme of sibling rivalry by using soft watercolors to make the monster family more lovable. The result is a delightfully wicked monster family that children will wish lived next door.

Pat Hutchins lives in London with her husband, Laurence, also an artist. They have two sons, Morgan and Sam. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
My 2.5 year old really got into the spirit of counting and numbers with this book. Especially great if your child likes finding hidden things like in the I-Spy books, or just peek-a-boo type of games. My daughter started asking for this book (which was already one of her second tier favorites) every night (thus elevating it to first tier) after our visit to SF zoo. I have difficulty explaining to her what a hunter is; not that that is central to the plot. We just laugh at the end when he is totally surprised and shocked to see all these animals following him all this time, and his glasses and his rifle fall from his hands and he is running for dear life! We are fans of all the Pat Hutchins books.

I read this book to my cousin's children ranging in age from 4-7. We all had fun guessing what the animals hiding in the background would be once we turned the page. The illustrations were great, they were very colorful and the numbers are large. All of the children's favorite part was the hunter running away from so many animals! I liked that it allowed me to include the group by having them count to the next number and then guessing what the animal would be. I also liked that at the end of the story we counted backwards to show that numbers aren't always presented lowest to highest. The book was best for the younger kids but the older kids liked it as well.

I first found this as part of a library reading kit I used when reading to pre-schoolers. I have since started building my own collection for this reading and wanted this to be part of it. The kids (3 yr olds) love to figure out which animals are hiding while the hunter walks past without seeing them.
